Synopsis

Leading scholars have combined forces to

produce this volume on the philosophy and legal views of Moses Maimonides

(1138-1204) and the historical context in which he worked. The philosophical

section examines Maimonides' ethical doctrine; his paradoxical life-style; his Guide of the Perplexed; his attitude to

mysticism; his use of language; and his theory of astronomy. The legal section

deals with law and medicine, the relation of Maimonides' legal thought to the

Talmud; his doctrine of a just war; and his theory of redemption and

Messianism. The history section examines Maimonides' accession to the position

of head of the Jewish community in its historical context, at the time of the

rise of the `Ayyubid dynasty under Saladin.
